Speaking of horns... I'm so pissed (at myself).

Last night, I was putting a decoder in mine and one of the horns fell off. No big deal, add some glue, and... ::ping:: off it goes from the tweezers and into the wild blue yonder.

Oh, why did I get a blue carpet?

Now, where do I order a replacement again?

Weren't you the one who told me to build out a box a few inches deep to do my work in?

Hmm, sounds like good advice, that I would take credit for, but I don't think it was me.

I probably should do that though... or at least get some sort of light colored hard floor covering for the area.

Oh yeah!

9590:




Ed, what brand/color did you use on the patches.. it looks like a pretty good match.  Close enough that the patches look like factory paint.

Thanks ~Ian

Has anyone removed cab glazing? It's a very tight fit.
 Is Shipshure still with us, Joe from MTL? Or banned?

Why would Joe be banned?  You can always try to PM him.

I believe it's Polyscale B&M blue. It also nicely matches Atlas stuff too.
